Actually the wedges under the axle correct caster only and the camber must be adjusted by bending the axle with a bottle jack and a canteliver type tool. I would suspect your axle is not bent that much but rather your king pins are worn or your bearings are shot.
Lift the front of the truck by placing the jack under the axle and wiggle the tire top and bottom. Watch the spindle for movement and you will be able to tell if the bearings, kingpins or both are bad.
Let us know what you find out.

they make a camber shim that bolts up behind the spindle on SOME solid axles for camber adjustment with the removable spindle
